$31,000??? Good Lord…If he’s got that kinda money, why doesn’t he buy a house instead? For $31,000 I would be happy to bring him to Birmingham and show him exactly how to buy and sell 50 houses a year.
haha…Some of those guru people kill me. Financial freedom is great thing to have, if you have the ability to include the freedom. Without the freedom, though, you just have a high-paying JOB…There’s is nothing wrong with that, but please don’t present yourself as a “full-time” investor when you’re on the road 3 days a week pitching a bunch of books you’re selling. That is not a full-time investor.
I have personally been a full-time investor for 12 years now…I’m 30 years old. I bought my first house at 18, and I’ve never had a job. Now, don’t think it’s always been easy, because it hasn’t. And don’t think it’s always been profitable, because there have been some bad times. But I stuck with it.
I love talking about real estate investing, but I’ve never had the desire to hit the streets with an armload of books and tapes to convince someone to do what I do.
Happy Investing Ya’ll,
